Founder of Plato Predictive Learning

Dr Andrew Phillip

Lecturer and Co-ordinator at University of Sydney

Expert in Statistical Analysis

Dr Andrew Phillip began his tertiary studies at the University of New South Wales, where he was a Co-Op scholar in Actuarial Studies, applying mathematical and statistical methods to risk assessment theory.

 

Andrew’s interest in statistical analysis made him an attractive proposition for the banking sector. He was one of three people selected from more than three thousand candidates to work for AMP Capital, where he managed funds of over $300M.

 

Keen to develop his portfolio of skills, Andrew returned to his studies to complete an MSc in Mathematics. Buoyed by his Honours Class 1 grade, he decided to pursue an academic career at the University of Sydney, where he studied for a PhD in Mathematics.

 

Within months of starting his PhD, Andrew was offered a Postgraduate Teaching Fellowship. This honour is generally reserved for PhD students in the second year of their research studies.

 

After receiving exemplary appraisals from his students, Andrew realised that education was his calling.

 

Andrew’s PhD research was widely recognised as ground-breaking: predicting the future volatility of Bitcoin. It was so acclaimed that he published four papers; one of which is now viral with over one hundred citations.

 

After graduating in three years, Andrew remained at the University of Sydney where he is currently a coordinator and lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics for their Masters delivery.


Andrew works with over one thousand students each term and manages over fifty tutors in the School.
